US to Deploy Lethal Drones to Korean Peninsula After Olympic Games

Sputnik – 21.02.2018

Recent reports by South Korean news media claim that the US will deploy attack drones to the Korean Peninsula in the next few months.

Twelve attack drones that can target North Korean leaders and military targets will be deployed in March or April, South Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbo reported this week.

According to the report, a hangar has already been constructed for the Gray Eagle drones. In addition, support facilities and personnel have reportedly already arrived at the US air base at Kunsan on the west coast.

The General Atomics MQ-1C Gray Eagle is an unmanned aircraft system developed by General Atomics Aeronautical Systems for the US Army. The Gray Eagle, which has an 18-yard wingspan, can conduct various missions including attack, reconnaissance, surveillance and infiltration. Its 248-mile range gives it enough reach to cover most of North Korean territory.

This is not the first time that the US has sent attack drones to South Korea. Last March, the US deployed attack drones in response to “provocative actions” by North Korea, although this threat has not deterred the North from conducting nearly a nearly a dozen missile tests since then.

Earlier this week, a US forces spokesperson also announced that military drills between the US and South Korea will begin again once the Paralympic Games in Pyeongchang end in March, military.com reported.

      • YOU MAY WANT TO DO SOME RESEARCH ON THIS, BUT WE HAVE ANOTHER FORM OF WICKEDNESS CONDUCTED INTERNATIONALLY, WHERE PEOPLE GET ABDUCTED, THEN MURDERED, AND THEIR BODY PARTS ARE SHIPPED ALL OVER THE WORLD. MANY COUNTRIES ARE ACCEPTING BODY PARTS FOR A PRICE. PEOPLE ARE BEING ABDUCTED IN THE USA AND ELSEWHERE. THERE IS NO PATRIOTISM LEFT IN ME FOR ANYBODY, COUNTRY, OR THING, AS IT HAS ETERNALLY BEEN ERASED FROM MY SOUL. WE ARE ALL THE END TIME CHILDREN. THIS WORLD HAS NEVER BEEN SO WICKED, AND JUST TO THINK IT CAN AND WILL GET WORSE. LET BIBLE PROPHECY BECOME FULFILLED AND JESUS CHRIST RETURN QUICKLY.

  1. I had read that North Korea has a lot of underground military installations and I would assume that the U.S. is aware of this and that this is also a reason why the North Koreans continue to go ahead with their missile testing.

    And it is my opinion that they should continue in their pursuit of trying to build long-range nuclear missiles. Look at what happened to Iraq, Libya, Somalia and the list is endless and the U.S. is also pursuing its agenda against Iran and Syria. We must forever find some other country on which to use all those drones and missiles we’ve paid billions for while people here are starving and homeless and our infrastructure is fucked up.

    Another sad fact is that the U.S. will forever be somewhere targeting some other country for any made up reason, just any reason because that’s all this shithole has ever done.

    • Absolutely, Shelby. I would hate to see North Korea end up like Iraq, Libya, Somalia and all the other victims of US imperialism. And I know for a fact South Korea doesn’t want a failed state on their border (in large part because they have so many family members in North Korea) – which is why the new South Korean president is doing everything possible to resist US tyranny.
